VIDEO: The Peak Prosperity Tribe Speaks!

A short montage of advice from your peers
Friday, January 18, 2019, 6:06 PM

By now you're probably well-aware that this year's Peak Prosperity annual seminar is being held in beautiful northern California's wine country from April 26-28, 2019.

And yes, of course, Chris and I think the experience delivered at these seminars is life-changing and highly valuable -- and we strongly recommend you join us this year. But as the producers of the event, we're obviously biased as heck.

So rather than hearing more from us, why not hear from actual Peak Prosperity members who have attended? What do they think?

Is it a worthwhile investment? What can you expect?

Well, we asked several PPers who went last year to share their thoughs with you. Each submitted a short video clip, which we've stiched together into this brief montage for you. » Read more



The Shale Oil Revolution Actually Reflects a Nation in Decline

Faster consumption + no strategy = diminished prospects
Friday, January 11, 2019, 7:48 PM

For several decades now the US has been getting its energy policy very badly wrong.  It's so short-sighted, and rely so heavily on techno-optimism, that it barely deserves to be called a 'policy' at all. 

Which is why we predict that in the not-too-distant future, this failure to plan will attack like a hungry wolfpack to bite down hard on the US economy’s hamstrings and drag it to the ground. » Read more

Is This Downturn A Repeat of 2008?

Crashes differ, so be cautious about your assumptions
Friday, January 4, 2019, 10:01 PM

Are we in a repeat of the global financial meltdown and recession of 2008-09? The sharp drop in equities is certainly reminiscent of 2008. Indeed, the December decline is the worst in a decade. Or are we entering a different kind of recession, the equivalent of uncharted waters?

And if we are entering a recession, what can central banks and governments do to ease the financial pain and damage? We can’t be sure of much, but we can be relatively confident central banks and states will respond to the cries to “do something.”  This poses two questions: what actions can central banks/states take, and will those policies work or will they backfire and make the recession worse? » Read more

The Ghost Of Christmas Future

A frightening world awaits unless we change our ways
Friday, December 28, 2018, 8:04 PM

Here in the brief period between Christmas and New year’s, as a writer I am obligated to say happy, wishful things. I have to confess, I’m just not feeling it this year, so I’ll just do the minimum here and return to being a curmudgeon, because that’s what the times call for.

So, happy new year.  I hope everything works out well for you in 2019. » Read more

The Festering Social Rift Over Pensions

Why does he get to retire and I don't?
Friday, December 14, 2018, 6:43 PM

Most Americans will never be able to afford to retire.

And now that the Everything Bubble is bursting and a return to economic recession appears increasingly probable within the next year or two, the disparty in prospects between the 35 million future pensioners and the rest of the workforce will become increasingly obvious.

The danger here is of festering social discord. The majority, whom we already know will not be able to retire, will highly likely start regarding pensioners with envy and resentment. » Read more
